It’s been three decades since Lenny Kravitz released, his debut album, Let Love Rule. A mind-bending blur of rock, soul, funk, and psych, the album—and Kravitz—forced a narrow-minded industry to look outside its rigid, genre-ruled box.
With his 11th studio album, Raise Vibration, Kravitz is still at it, grabbing everything from Off The Wall-style dance floor jams to Johnny Cash-themed ballads by the balls. It’s Kravitz’s career-long message that attempts to unite all the disparate parts. “The message remains the same,” he explained in a statement about the album, “It was and always will be about love…With these songs, I offer you vibrations of peace, love and unity.
